Does anyone know if it possible to view HTML files stored on the iPad in either the browser or another app? IOW - if I backup a small website and put the files on the iPad can I then browse the website offline?
I'm looking for a very very simple app so that I can work on (edit & view offline) my webpage from the iPad. On my MacBook I use TextEdit to code. I do not want anything that writes code for me or makes changes to my code. Just to be able to edit .HTML pages, manually type changes, and then preview them.
I'm looking for a way to store and view linked electronical data on my iPad.
Use case: My mom is a tour guide. She has a lot of information to bring along, which she currently collects in word files and prints out and then has trouble finding again when needed. Because of the linked nature of the information, I'd go for a wiki, to prepare at home and then display on the iPad when needed. But at that time an internet connection is not given (tunnel, countryside) so everything needs to be stored on the iPad.
I see two ways to achieve this (there might be more):
1) Install php and set up a php webserver on the iPad, set up a wiki locally and store all the information directly on the iPad.
2) Set up a wiki at my web hosters, prepare the data when there is an internet connection and copy the data to the iPad with an offline wiki reader configured for my domain (at home).
Problems and thoughts:
- Is it possible to install php and a webserver on an non jailbreaked iPad? I'd rather not jailbreak my moms iPad...
- IMHO using pdfs poses the same problem of finding information as paper.
- I haven't yet found a wiki reader both configurable and offline ready.
-A 10 step process might be ok for me but again this being for my mom it should be simple. I'd rather not introduce another app like SiteSucker to copy the data.
Using Simple HTML Files To Play Movies Via AirPlay Using The Safari Browser
Apr 14, 2011
I few days ago, I found a way using simple HTML files to play movies via AirPlay using the Safari browser. But I just got an update on the app oPlayer HD lite and they have enabled AirPlay for any mp4 movies...
This means that using the browser of OPlayer HD, you can click on any movie in mp4 format on any website and you'll be able to stream via AirPlay to your apple tv...Pretty sweet...
That means that I can have a local web server (apache), displaying any movie files from a hard drive, and play them directly on my iPad or stream them to my apple tv. No need for HTML pages or scripts. All you need is having the web server to list the content of the folder.
I just bought the CCK and was disappointed do find that the iPad would not read any of the raw-files that are stored on the SD-card. I can not find any list of supported craw types for CCK/iPad, so I would like to know if my camera is supposed to be supported or not. When I shoot raw, it does not find the images, and when I shoot raw+jpg, only jpb are copied to the ipad
Where Are The Files Stored For Shared Applications?
Aug 9, 2010
When I go to iTunes/iPad/Apps and then choose Pages under "File Sharing" and move a few files over, where are those files stored? Does iTunes make another copy and store it somewhere or does it just reference the location I copied from?
Also, if I move a file over and then delete that file, does it delete from the File Sharing section as well the next time I sync?
